statement must be included in the caption (e.g., ©SPOT Image,
Copyright [year] CNES).
Authors should use black and white
illustrations whenever possible. Authors who include color
illustrations will be charged for the cost of color reproduction. These
costs must be paid before an article is published. Details on color
costs can be found at
indicate in the cover letter that they have the funds to pay for any
color figures in their paper.
The metric system (SI Units) will be employed
throughout a manuscript except in cases where the English
System has special merit stemming from accepted conventional
usage (e.g., 9- by 9-inch photograph, 6-inch focal length). Authors
should refer to “Usage of the International System of Units,”
Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing
, 1978, 44 (7):
Authors should express equations as simply as pos-
sible. They should include only those equations required by an
average reader to understand the technical arguments in the man-
uscript. Manuscripts that appear to have excessive mathematical
notation may be returned to the author for revision. Whenever
possible, authors are encouraged to use the Insert and Symbol
capabilities of Microsoft Word to build simple equations. If that
is not possible, the author must indicate in the cover letter which
software was used to create the equations.
Microsoft Equation Editor, or MathType
format should be used
only if absolutely necessary. Equations must be numbered, but
unlike tables, figures, color plates, and line drawings should be
embedded in the text file.
A complete and accurate reference list is essential.
Only works cited in the text should be included. Cite references to
published literature in the text in alphabetical order by authors’
last names and date, as for example, Jones (1979), Jones and
Smith (1979) or (Jones, 1979; Jones and Smith, 1979), depending
on sentence construction. If there are more than two authors,
they should be cited as Jones et al. (1979) or (Jones
Personal communications and unpublished data or reports should
not be included in the reference list but should be shown paren-
thetically in the text (Jones, unpublished data, 1979). Format for
references will be as follows:

In keeping with the process of blind reviews,
authors are asked not to include acknowledgments in manuscripts
submitted for peer review. An acknowledgment may reveal a
considerable amount of information for reviewers that is not nec-
essary or desirable for their evaluation of the manuscript. After
a manuscript is accepted for publication, the lead author will be
encouraged to insert appropriate acknowledgments.
authors of manuscripts submitted for review will receive an
e-mail from the Editor acknowledging receipt of the manuscript.
Manuscript Review Procedures can be found at
All peer-reviewed manuscripts should be
Dr. Russell G. Congalton, Editor-in-Chief
Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing
4 Ryan Way
Durham, NH 03824 USA
; Tel.: (603) 862-4644
These instructions also apply
to manuscripts submitted for a Special Issue. However, Special Issue
manuscripts and Cover Letters should be sent directly to the Guest
Editor, not to Dr. Congalton. Please refer to the Special Issue Call for
Papers for the Guest Editor contact information.
NOTE: Authors should NOT MAIL MANUSCRIPTS TO ASPRS
HEADQUARTERS. This will cause the review to be delayed.
